Singer/songwriter at Bodmin Folk Club
John Conolly is an internationally respected songwriter who has based his style firmly in the British folk tradition. He writes thought provoking, tuneful singable songs and also the outrageously funny, such as the cheeky ‘Send us a Postcard’.
He says of himself ‘ I like the economy and elegance of the language of the folk song’. His inspiration comes from a wide range of writers including Causley, Betjeman, Cyril Tawney, Leon Rosselson, Jake Thackray and Pete Seeger.
Cyril Tawney said of John’s writing ‘ This is the poetry of the working man’.
He has an easy going charm and a sense of fun which endears him to his audience.
